Forty-four remain and 16 of them will survive. It's time for Day 4 of 2018 PokerStars European Poker Tour Prague.
Two Day 1s and two more days have been played at Hilton Prague. The starting stack of 30,000 now represents just a couple of big blinds, and 44 competitors have emerged from the field of 1,174, competing for a first-place prize of over €1 million.
Foremost among them in terms of chip count is Konstantin Farber, who has 2 million as the tournament prepares to head to 8,000/16,000/16,000. The Day 3 leader will be joined near the top of the counts by Evangelos Bechrakis, Andrija Robovic and Parker Talbot.
The last name may be of most note to poker fans around the world, especially the nearly 100,000 who follow Talbot's online tournament exploits on Twitch.
While those players are in the best position to advance to Day 5, accomplished players like Liviu Ignat, Tobias Peters, Andrey Pateychuk, Anton Wigg and Henrik Hecklen also remain in contention, so it's sure to be a contentious day here on Day 4.
Play will begin at the aforementioned 16,000 level with eight-handed tables and 90-minute levels, starting at noon local time here in the Czech capital. Breaks will be given after every level and play will continue until the last 16 bag up for the final two days of the event. A 30-second timer will be in use, with players getting replenished stashes of six time banks.
